No: 210, 5 August 2018, Press Release Regarding The Explosion During The Ceremony Of The Venezuelan National Guard In Caracas

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 05.08.2018

We are deeply saddened by the attack which was apparently aimed at President Maduro himself, that was perpetrated in a ceremony held on the occasion of the 81st anniversary of the foundation of Venezuelan National Guards in Caracas, to which President Nicolas Maduro Moros, his wife and son, government members and military officials attended. We strongly condemn this heinous attack.

It is the greatest consolation that President Maduro and his relatives survived the incident unharmed. We wish speed recovery to the 7 soldiers reported to have been wounded in the explosions.

In this difficult time, Turkey stands with the brotherly and friendly Venezuelan people and President Maduro, his family and all government officials.

The continuation of stability, prosperity, peace and security in Venezuela is our greatest wish. This is also important for regional stability and world peace.

We offer our well wishes to President Maduro, his esteemed family, government members and all Venezuelan people.
